Overview

If you’re an ambitious engineering graduate – from a civil, mechanical, computing or electronic engineering background – this course is a smart route to a career in the expanding field of transport consultancy and public policy.

Our Transport Planning and Engineering MSc will teach you engineering techniques to develop transport networks that are founded on fundamental principles, robust evidence, sustainable and equitable principles, state-of-the-art modelling, accurate data analysis, and an understanding of human psychology.

Taught by researchers with an international reputation, this Masters degree has been designed following close consultation with industry to help prepare you for a rewarding career. It also addresses the multi-disciplinary nature of transport – enabling you to make effective decisions for clients, employers and society.

Studying in the Institute of Transport Studies at Leeds will also give you a unique head start in your career in transport. Not only does our world-leading research shape the course, but our close links with large corporations means you’ll have chance to interact with potential employers and possibly interview for graduate schemes and other vacancies. We also offer opportunities to build your industry work experience before you graduate with work placements and project work throughout your course.

Programme Structure

Throughout this course, you’ll learn to develop solutions to engineering problems that fit the broader aims of transport and planning policy. You'll study a selection of core modules that address many of the key issues currently facing transport industry professionals. These provide you with a holistic overview of transport problems and approaches to policy formulation. You’ll also deepen your knowledge of:

  • Engineering design principles

  • Integrated transport networks - road, rail, and aviation

  • Refining models to fit local contexts

  • How to use SATURN and other Leeds-built models so that you become fluent in their use in live environments

You’ll also be able to choose from a wide range of optional modules. This allows you to develop more specialised skills and tailor your degree towards your preferred career interests. You'll also study our Transport Integrated Project module, which gives you an experience of a typical real-world transport project.
